Roof Top Tent History

The first ideas for car-top tents emerged in Western Europe in the early 1930s. The most popular region was Italy, but over time they spread all over the world and became more preferable than ground tents. With the advancement of technology, in early 1953, roof top tents, which are the infrastructure of today’s designs, began to be produced. The logic of the tents was the same as that of a normal ground tent, with rods inside. In 2003, a French manufacturer produced the first lightweight soft-shell tent. The products, which offered limited possibilities with the intermediate wefts of those times, are presented to you at Mekik Motors in an improved form.

When they were first produced, these tents, which were only soft-shell fabric, were mounted directly on the roof of the vehicle.  Entry was provided by supporting the ladder to the front of the vehicle. With the development of humanity, hard-shell tents were introduced. Fiberglass, carbon fiber and ABS plastic started to be used. Systems and designs were developed and developed into what they are today.

The tents we produce are reinforced with the latest technology and made the most comfortable and safest possible for you.
